Former Egyptian finance minister, Youssef Boutros-Ghali, was living openly in London despite being convicted of corruption and profiteering in his home country.

MPs wanted to know why he was being allowed to remain in the UK, despite being the subject of an Interpol “red notice”.

Mr Boutros-Ghali, the nephew of the former UN secretary-general Boutros Boutros-Ghali, was convicted and sentenced to 30 years in jail for corruption, abusing state and private assets as well as profiteering.

He was ordered to repay 60 million Egyptian pounds (£6.1m).
